Yoga on my head

I conquered the yoga head stand bench. I still need to work on keeping my body straight, but my feet are up in the air! Yea! 

Trying to give myself time to figure out this online maze. What are my objectives? To make things and share (via sales) with people. Will I make a living at this? Questionable. As Henry Ford said, "You get what you believe". I believe I like making things. I like the things I make. I only carry the bags I make because I love them! This is one outlet of my life. I grow when I am around people. It is a difficult growing because my introverted self prefers to isolate. My job forces me to be around people, difficult at times, but good. 

Patience. I think I am a patient person until things take longer than I would like or don't go smoothly. I started listing bags on BigCartel, but there are things I don't like. I like Shopify, but do I believe in myself enough to pay the fee and try? I tried to do this before, about ten years ago, and got distracted. 

Some of the most magical and calming memories I have from 10 years ago that give me joy are when I followed independent artists like My Paper Crane, Euro Trash, Vanilla Dolly, Squeaky Monkey, and Brandi Shigley. I am so thankful they opened that part of their lives. It was/is inspiring to watch their talent and creations expand. They spread the love.

Things I make are like snap shots into time. What was go'n on? We are almost a year into covid. I am feeling overwhelmed being on hold. I want to do the right thing for everyone and myself. We are in this together. Not just my street, my city, my state, my country, but my world. Diversity is true beauty it all its facets.
